I think that you should definitely try to seek some help if you are afraid of killing yourself. Your friend obviously cares about you, and I think that if you are really afraid of your actions you should let her do it.

Good luck, dear. Take care. <3

Believe that your life is worth living, and your belief will help create the fact.
-Henry James<3


Sometimes it's easy to feel like you're the only one in the world who's struggling. Who's frustrated, or unsatisfied, or barely getting by. That feeling is a lie. And if you just hold on, just find the courage to face it all for another day. Someone or something will find you and make it all okay.Because we all need a little help sometimes.


Feel free to message me anytime. I'm always here to help. More importantly I'm always happy to help.<3

I know that it wont but fun, but it really is your decision. If you are worried about being a big danger to yourself, then I think the baker act would be a good decision. The most important thing is that you get the help you need and that you get better.

Maybe you could see a therapist?


And here you are living, despite it all.

Hey there! I used to self harm all the time, but it's currently been... 66 days since I've last done it. I agree, you should get help, even if it sucks and is hard as heck sometimes. I'm sure baker acted is no walk in the park... But in my experience, getting possessional help pays off a lot more in the long run than it does trying to go it alone. I think you should go for it!



Take me seriously.
I dare you.
